#Meteor.js on OpenShift, with custom version o nodeJS Deploy meteor.js application bundles on OpenShift

This example uses: Meteor example application (leaderboard) with custom version of nodeJS ready for deploy to openshift.

Configure your OpenShift gear

We use any old nodeJS (node 0.6), but we need some "cartridge", finally it uses nodeJs version 10.24 (but you can change it - se below). Name of our application is "myapp".

There are 2 choices: one gear (1 Gear = NodeJs+Mongo) or scaled. I recomended you use scalable version, because Mongo with Node is to big for one gear. Not-scalable solution (MongoDb has 0.5Gb, Suma is 0.8Gb, Limit is 1Gb !!):

 rhc app create myapp  nodejs-0.6 mongodb-2.2  --from-code=git://
 #see quota:
 rhc show-app myapp --gears quota

Scalable solution(Mongo has own gear, it is great!):

 rhc app create myapp  nodejs-0.6 --from-code=git:// -s     
 rhc cartridge add mongodb-2.2 -a myapp
 #You can limit scale-number (optionally):
 rhc scale-cartridge nodejs-0.6 -a myapp --min 1 --max 2

 #Now push something to rebuild all.

The above command will output a local copy of your OpenShift application source in a folder matching your application name. Be sure to run this command from within a folder where you would like to keep your project source.

That's it! Check out your new Meteor.js application at:

Change version of nodeJS

Example above uses node version 0.10.24. You can change it anywhere by changing file on the path:


then don't forgot to push changes to openshift

git add . 
git commit -am "any message"
git push

Switch from 'Demo app (leaderboard) to your real application'

In my case :
1) I have used 'demeteorizer' (see article
2) then I have copied 'demeteorized' content to myapp, except file package.json.
3) Package.json file I have manually "merged" (there are dependencies, which you must keep from your application)
4) git add, commit, push
5) see your output: 

rhc tail myapp

6) if you see errors, if some dependency is missing: 
  add it to 'Package.json' and go to step 4)

This solution worked for me.

For beginers : OpenShift Online Setup

In this quickstart guide, we'll be using OpenShift Online to host our application.

Sign up for an account at

If you don't already have the rhc (Red Hat Cloud) command-line tools, install them:

sudo gem install rhc

You'll need to run rhc setup to link your OpenShift Online account with your local development environment, and to select an application namespace:

rhc setup

If you need any additional assistance setting up rhc, this doc may come in handy:
